Hillsborough COVID-19 Information

Hillsborough COVID-19 Information

Reported Case Count

Updated Wednesday, September 23 at 4 pm 
PLEASE NOTE:  These numbers will continue to be evaluated as the Health Department obtains additional information on the case count.   
Please refer to disclaimer below regarding not adding the two case counts together for overall case count.  This daily case count increase is reflective of those individuals that have tested positive via the rapid antigen tests and the molecular PCR test.  The State and County are not reporting cases that test positive via rapid antigen testing, hence the variance in Hillsborough's reporting versus State and County.  Any specific questions should be directed to the Township's Health Department at 908-369-5652.

Breakdown of Hillsborough Township Cases

As Reported by Hillsborough Township Health Department

Disclaimer:

Please be advised that the numbers posted here are those that are reported by Hillsborough Township Health Department based on reports from the NJ Department of Health surveillance system. The reported numbers are only from those individuals who have been tested for COVID-19 and are confirmed positive through an FDA approved laboratory for COVID-19 testing purpose. It does not include those contacts of the positive individuals or any individuals, who are sick and have not been tested.

* Confirmed cases and confirmed deceased from Long Term Care and Assisted Living Facilities may not also be included in the total number of cases above.

The number of cases from the above section by age and deceased cannot be added to the Long Term Care and Assisted Living Facilities confirmed cases and confirmed deceased to get a total case count and a total deceased count.  The reason for this is that there are different reporting mechanisms in place capturing that data.  The NJ Department of Health surveillance system obtains reports from State run labs.  The Long Term Care and Assisted Living Facilities utilize many different labs, State, out-of-state and private, therefore, their numbers are not completely reflected in the total Hillsborough numbers from the State system at this time.  That withstanding, you cannot simply add the two sets of numbers either to get a total case count, as some of the LTC/ALF numbers are counted in the State system.
